republican nominee for president mitt romney was critical of president obama's handling of the law. >> i think the key thing that the president is trying to get away from and that is he told people they could keep their insurance and that wasn't the truth. whether you like the model of obama care or not the fact the president sold it under a model is not true the. the only way he can rebuild credibility is work with republicans and democrats and rebuild a foundation. we got to have a president that can lead. right now he's not able to do so. >> as for the website government officials say will go off line temporarily on a daily basis to fix its ongoing issues. >> robert gibbses i want to go back to something that was said before in the "the washington post." it's stunning that you have the biggest start up ever run by somebody that had never run a start up before or had business experience before. i mean, looking back, people are scratching their heads for years how did they make these mistakes. how did mistakes like this happen inside the west wing? >> i think that's a f
yesterday, the same man that accused mitt romney of killing a woman, remember that? mitt romney killed my wife. remember that commercial? he was such a beast, a horrible human being. mitt romney killed my wife. barack obama believed that. >> obama did not claim that. the president did not say that. >> hillary clinton wasn't running against him in 2012. >> this commercial was put together by some sort of arm. >> somebody very close to barack obama. barack obama takes responsibility, the buck stops with barack obama. >> okay. >> barack obama and his campaign and people connected to his campaign and people closely associated with him in the past claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. >> okay. the story is bad enough, you don't need to do that. >> can i please make my point? i'm going to say it again, barack obama, his campaign, they all claimed in 2012. it was one of the most horrific claims that mitt romney killed a man's wife. >> i remember condemning the commercial as well. >> mika, i'm going to keep doing this, okay? so, in 2012, barack obama claimed that mitt romney killed a woman. ye
of ideas and public-point strategies. mitt romney's poor showing among latino voters in 2012 helped ensure barack obama's re-election, republican leaders, have a chateened and without any other obvious way to increase their vote base before 2016, pledged earlier this year. yet party leaders in part because they have been tied down since july by the debt confrontation haven't found a way to move legislation past the nativist caucus in the house. i'll go back to this anti-intellectual. deeper decline in the republican party. isn't it possible that this tea party movement or this battle over the debt ceiling, the government shutdown could help clean out the extremists part of the republican party because people are beginning to lose faith in it? >> well every purge reaches a point where the tide turns the other way and it goes too far and there's a question now in the aftermath of the government shutdown is whether the republican spaert going to rally back around its sort of center right establishment. as we've seen in earlier discussion this morning, most of the stallworth republican senator
press, right, they were the world's greatest tech campaign because, you know, romney couldn't launch an app that wouldn't crash, right? so the bar was really low in terms of the comparison. if you look at the management operation of the campaign, second time around, very different, extremely messy. you look at the management in government, very messy. it's been very hard for them to do anything without moving out of this closed inner circle. and so the other follow through problem, there is a management question here. there is also a myth making question, which is to say very successful in projecting an image, ultimately, if that image doesn't stack up to reality, will you get found out. when you think about what you can do as an administration second term, this was it. so getting it wrong does suggest they weren't focused on what they could actually achieve in the second term. i have no doubt they will get it right in the end. in the end, it can cost them a lot of votes. >> let's go to washington, bring in chuck todd, obviously, we are talking about management right here, you know,
his health care while using mitt romney's plan in massachusetts as an example. >> if it was hard to do it in one state it's hard doing it in all 50 states, especially when the governors of a bunch of states and half of the congress aren't trying to help. yeah. it's hard. but it's worth it. it is the right thing to do. we're going to keep moving forward. >> what can happen here in massachusetts can happen all across the country and for them and for you we're going to see through. for the fewer than 5% of americans who buy insurance on your own, you will be getting a better deal. so anyone peddling the notion that insurers are cancelling people's plan without mentioning that almost all the insurers are encouraging people to join better plans with the same carrier and stronger benefits and stronger protection while others will be able to get better plans with new carriers through the marketplace and many will get new help to pay for these better plans and make them cheaper if you leave that stuff out, you're being grossly misled to say the least. >>> all right. so challenges for both side
you feel this is a conversation that the republican party has been having at least since mitt romney lost the election last year perhaps before. do you feel the impact of the shutdown, the low poll numbers that we're seeing is this actually something that will impact the direction of the party? will it be forgotten in three or four weeks? >> it depends on what lessons people take from it. that's why we wrote this article because we wanted people to take the right lesson from it. it's certainly possible for people to conclude well we just should have been purer. it's never -- it's always self-confirming. >> where does it? i'm genuinely concerned about the republican party. >> come on, gene. you don't have to lie for us. come on. >> i didn't say -- >> next you'll be telling us if we want to keep our insurance we can keep our insurance. >> no. i did not say i love the republican party. i said many times and have written that i think a strong two party system is a good thing. >> i can tell you that ramesh and i and rich and the rest of the guys are thankful for your concern for the conse
